* British comedy-superhero parody ''Series/SuperGran'' is a campy depiction about a grandmother with superpowers. It's regarded as "meh" at best in the UK but it was a huge hit in Cuba breaking records on ratings.

* ''The EurovisionSongContest'' is [[http://www.escinsight.com/2011/01/26/the-special-relationship-australia-and-its-love-of-eurovision/ popular in Australia]], despite it not only not having a stake in the competition, but being on the other side of the planet from the nations competing. Australians have represented the UK and other nations in the contest on more than one occasion (Olivia Newton-John, Gina G, Jane Comerford), and Creator/{{SBS}}, Eurovision's Australian broadcaster, has their own commentary team for the event, but only after Radio/TerryWogan retired, since his commentary was so insanely popular in Australia that both initial attempts to replace him and the British commentary team with local versions (in 2001 and '04) sparked howls of protest.

** They are really popular in Uzbekistan as well. Not much of a surprise considering the two nations share a good part of their origins and have quite similar languages.

** ''Series/KamenRiderBlack'' was very popular in the Philippines; many a young person's face or those in their old years who watched it as kids will light up at the mention of ''Kuya'' Robert- Kuya is a Filipino word for a big brother figure and Robert was DubNameChange for the protagonist Kotaro Minami. It was also the GatewaySeries in Indonesia. Black, [[CompletelyDifferentTitle there known as Ksatria Baja Hitam]] (Black Steel Knight), is considered ''the'' essential Rider, more so than the original. Finally, it's well liked in Brazil. Alas, Black and its sequel ''Series/KamenRiderBlackRX'' were the only installments of the entire Rider franchise (not counting the US adaptations) that aired there in the 1990s. It would only be in 2003 when Kamen Rider returned, this time on cable (with ''Kamen Rider Ryuki'' and its US spinoff) and in 2014 on free television with ''Series/KamenRiderOOO''.
